Christmas 1961:  Annual McGlaughlin Marksmanshop Match

 

 

Photos L-R:  Marksmanship has always been big in the 14th.  Remember Maj. Severne McGlaughlin, 1939 to 1942?  He was a Distinguished Marksman with both the pistol and the rifle.  In the Army, he ranked 5th with the rifle, and 7th with the pistol.  So we established an annual McGlaughlin contest.  Here, Willard Grace, Lucile's father, awards trophies after the match.

Master Sergeant Sametisi - both rifle and pistol champion.
